AfriTin Mining Limited

("AfriTin" or the "Company")

Result of Placing and Subscription

AfriTin Mining Limited (AIM: ATM), an African tech-metals mining company with a portfolio of mining and exploration assets in Namibia, is pleased to announce the successful completion of the Placing and Subscription announced on 15 September 2022, subject only to Admission (and in the case of the Subscription, subject to the receipt of proceeds).

Following strong demand in the bookbuild, the total gross proceeds from the Placing has increased from US$7.5 million to US$12.8 million (GBP11.1 million) resulting in aggregate gross proceeds from the Fundraising of US$22.8 million. The incremental Placing proceeds will be used to further expand the Uis resource drilling programme, Brandberg West development and for general corporate purposes.

A total of 222,701,660 new Ordinary Shares ("Placing Shares") have been conditionally placed with new and existing institutional investors pursuant to the Placing by Hannam & Partners and Stifel Nicolaus Europe Limited (the "Joint Bookrunners"), at a price of 5 pence per new Ordinary Share (the "Placing Price"), conditional inter alia upon their admission to trading on AIM. In addition, The Orange Trust has also subscribed for a total of 173,320,000 new Ordinary Shares (the "Subscription Shares"), at the Placing Price (the "Subscription"), conditional inter alia upon their admission to trading on AIM and receipt of proceeds.

A total of 396,021,660 new Ordinary Shares will therefore be issued pursuant to the Placing and Subscription, raising gross proceeds of GBP19.8 million (approximately US$22.8 million). The Placing Shares and Subscription Shares together represent approximately 26 per cent. of the Company's enlarged ordinary share capital after the completion of the Fundraising.

The Placing Price represents an 8 per cent. discount to the mid-market closing price on 15 September 2022.

The new Ordinary Shares to be issued pursuant to the Placing and Subscription will, when issued, be credited as fully paid and will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing Ordinary Shares of the Company, including the right to receive all dividends or other distributions made, paid or declared in respect of such shares after the date of issue of the new Ordinary Shares.

Capitalised terms used but not defined in this announcement shall have the meaning given to them in the announcement made on 15 September 2022.

Anthony Viljoen, CEO of AfriTin Mining Limited commented:

" On behalf of the board, I am delighted to announce completion and upsizing of the Placing and Subscription portion of the wider US$48.3 million Proposed Funding Package (now US$53.6m as a result of the upsizing), referred to in our announcement yesterday. Bringing on additional funding partners to complete this package, alongside Standard Bank, has the potential to position AfriTin at the forefront of the tech metals sector.

"We are excited to open up a new province in Namibia targeting a globally significant lithium resource, bring our lithium and tantalum revenue streams online, alongside significantly accelerating our existing tin operation for its next phase of development.

"We would like to sincerely thank all our existing shareholders for their continued support and welcome our new shareholders as we start this next chapter and look to fully unlock AfriTin's potential."

Participation by Existing Substantial Shareholders and Related Party Transactions

Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management ("Canaccord") will acquire 37,000,000 new Ordinary Shares at the Placing Price for gross proceeds of GBP1,850,000. Details of Canaccord's participation in the Placing is as follows:

 
 Substantial     Existing Holding   New Ordinary       Resultant holding      Resultant holding 
  Shareholder     of Ordinary        Shares to be       of Ordinary            as a % of the

                                                                               and Subscription 
                                                                               Admission

  Wealth 
  Limited        120,505,743        37,000,000         157,505,743            10.34% 
                -----------------  -----------------  ---------------------  ------------------- 
 

By virtue of Canaccord's holdings being more than 10 per cent. of the existing issued ordinary share capital of the Company, they are classified as a related party of the Company and its participation in the Placing is considered a 'related party transaction' under Rule 13 of the AIM Rules.

Glen Parsons, Terrance Goodlace and Laurence Robb, having not participated in the Subscription or the Placing, are independent of the Placing and consider, having consulted with WH Ireland Limited ("WH Ireland"), the Company's Nominated Adviser, that the terms of the participation by Canaccord in the Placing are fair and reasonable insofar as shareholders are concerned.

Admission and Total Voting Rights

Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for the Placing Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission"). It is expected that Admission will take place at 8.00 a.m. on 21 September 2022 (or such date as may be agreed between the Company and the Joint Bookrunners, being no later than 30 September 2022). Application has also been made to the London Stock Exchange for the Subscription Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Subscription Admission"). It is expected that the Subscription Admission will occur on or around 29 September 2022. The Placing is conditional upon, amongst other things, Admission becoming effective. The Placing is also conditional on the Placing Agreement not being terminated in accordance with its terms prior to Admission. The Placing is not conditional upon The Orange Trust Subscription completing. The Orange Trust Subscription is conditional on the Placing becoming unconditional and not being terminated, on the Subscription Admission and the receipt of the Subscription proceeds. Neither the Placing nor the Subscription are conditional upon the Orion Financing or the DBN Debt Financing (both as defined in the announcement of the Proposed Funding Package and Production Update released yesterday).

Following Admission of the Placing Shares the Company's issued ordinary share capital will consist of 1,344,543,344 Ordinary Shares, with the right to one vote each. The Company will hold no Ordinary Shares in treasury. Therefore, the total number of Ordinary Shares and voting rights in the Company will be 1,344,543,344. With effect from Admission, this figure may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

Following Admission of the Subscription Shares the Company's issued ordinary share capital will consist of 1,517,863,344 Ordinary Shares, with the right to one vote each. The Company will hold no Ordinary Shares in treasury. Therefore, the total number of Ordinary Shares and voting rights in the Company will be 1,517,863,344. With effect from the Subscription Admission, this figure may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
